Albuquerque Aligning Forces for Quality

In 2009, Albuquerque joined 14 communities nationwide in the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s (RWJF) national initiative, Aligning Forces for Quality (AF4Q), RWJF’s core strategy in its longstanding commitment to improve the quality of health care that Americans receive.

The Albuquerque Coalition for Healthcare Quality, a broad-based group of stakeholders comprised of health care providers, health plans, businesses and consumers, was established to carry out the AF4Q program in Albuquerque. 

The premise of Aligning Forces for Quality (AF4Q) is that no single person, group or profession can improve health and health care throughout a community without support of others. AF4Q asks these critical stakeholders to work toward common, fundamental objectives that RWJF and others believe will lead to better care.
